The Brothers Karamazov


Published February 4, 2010


LibriVox recording of The Brothers Karamazov, by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

The Brothers Karamazov (Russian: Братья Карамазовы) is the final novel by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky, and is generally considered the culmination of his life's work. The book portrays a parricide in which each of a murdered man's sons share a varying degree of complicity. The Brothers Karamazov is a passionate philosophical novel that explores deep into the ethical debates of God, free will, and morality. It is a spiritual drama of moral struggles concerning faith, doubt, reason, and modern Russia. Since its publication, it has been acclaimed all over the world by thinkers as diverse as Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, and Pope Benedict XVI as one of the supreme achievements in literature.

I'd not read the book and doubt if I ever would - huge turgid thing that it is. Loved having it read to me! Enormous project, many thanks.

Subject: Good Reading, Great Story
This story has been way down on my 'bucket list' for 40 years, but never rising up with any urgency. So I am grateful and delighted to discover this well done reading of the Brothers Karamazov which has opened up the complexity and humanness of this novel to me. It reminds me of reading Dr. Zhivago years ago, both books breakthrough to grab the reader no matter what country you come from. And what characters! The large download count is a clue to how good this reading is, just surprised that no one has bothered to come back and review it. (I'm only 1/4 of the way into the book so maybe the readers are not as good further on, I promise to come back and report).
